|Name: Lightning McQueen|
|Bio: Lightning McQueen is a hotshot rookie race car who loves going faster than fast. When he's not racing, he spends his time in Radiator Springs with his best pal, Mater.|
Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is the main protagonist of The Cars Show. He is a red race car, who races for the Piston Cup. He is the #95 racer, sponsored by Rust-eze Medicated Bumper Ointment. Though nice and pleasant, Lightning can be a bit selfish and self-centered sometimes. He is also brave, courageous and daring. Lightning is modeled after a 2006 Ford Scorpio NASCAR stock car. Lightning's last name, "McQueen", is a reference to Glenn McQueen, a supervising animator at Pixar who passed away in 2002.
